Ed Parnell's Cunning Plan

Meet Gavin – the world’s most sarcastic gorilla | Metro.co.uk

Gavin (we’ve named him, because the zoo hasn’t bothered) gets pretty peeved when visitors to the Jerusalem Zoo applaud him for his dances.

So peeved, in fact, that when they start clapping, he stops dancing, gives them a sarky grin, and mimics them precisely. Cheeky fella.

His antics have attracted plenty of attention, so at feeding time his enclosure is always surrounded.

As his keepers go in to feed him and his gorilla pals, most go straight for the grub – but not Gavin. When the crowds started applauding, he took a step away from the bunch and sat, one eye closed, clapping away and staring out the audience. Nice.

The pictures of Our Gav were captured by amateur photographer Olga Shiropaeva, who visited the zoo recently and witnessed his antics first hand.

The problem for Gavin is that the joke’s now backfired on him. People know he’s sarcastic so they’re clapping just to get a rise out of him.
